Arizona Coach Pumped Breast Milk for Her Baby During Halftime of NCAA Women's Championship Game

Coach Adia Barnes was a multitasking pro during the NCAA Women's Basketball championship game.

On Sunday in San Antonio, the University of Arizona coach, who is also a former WNBA champion, was spotted coming out of the locker room a bit later than the rest of the team. According to reporter Holly Rowe, Barnes, a mom to a 6-month-old baby girl named Capri, spent part of halftime pumping breast milk for her child.

"For those of you who think this is too much information, let's normalize working mothers and all they have to do," Rowe said.

Though No. 3 seed Arizona ultimately lost by one point to Stanford (53-54), Barnes was applauded on social media for being a "badass" working mother and leading the university to its first Final Four appearance.

Arizona previously made it to the Sweet 16 round.

"My team…my heart! This hurt but they played their hearts out and that's all that I can ask for. I'm so proud of them and what we accomplished this year!" Barnes tweeted after the game.
